Accountability questions for Canadian Defence Minister Sajjan on Gen. Vance allegations

CA, 20 Feb 2021
Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan repeatedly said he was “surprised” by the allegations made against former Chief of Defense Staff Gen. Jonathan Vance but would not disclose when he learned of allegations, stating that his hands were tied when it came to providing any such details.

Sajjan made the comments during a Friday meeting of the House of Commons defence committee, where he appeared as a witness for the committee’s study into allegations made against Vance first reported by Global News.

“I was as shocked as everyone else was at the allegations that were made public two weeks ago,” Sajjan said in his opening statement – and repeated multiple times throughout the committee.
